    Polaroid 110b 4x5 snap shooter with a lens interchangeable system!

    Hello everyone! I am new here
    I would like to show you the project I am on, to convert a Polaroid 110B into a 4x5 snap shooter with lens interchangeable system.
    It took me 4 years already, and I hope I can finish it by the end of this year!
    Please tell me what you think, any comments are welcome!!

    Looks like a cool project. How will you focus it?

    127mm lens on 4x5 is equivalent to 40mm focal length on 35mm camera, and 90mm equivalent to 25mm, so I think for such a wide angle lens, estimate and shoot is not difficult.

    I've seen many old Polaroids converted to 5x4, but not like this, very interesting project.....and I love that bellows! Good luck with it, and don't forget to post some shots with it.

    Thanks tony, and I think this can release people who want to convert Polaroid into 4x5 limited in 110B or 110A, actually, 900 will be another good candidate, for if you plan to use other L/F lens as standard lens, like fuji 125mm, old Zeiss tessar 120mm, are all good choice, compare to 127 Ysarex.

    Now I am working on the back, trying not to attach Graflex film back, to keep Polaroid's own slim style, not easy, but very challenging! Hope I can have a good result to share.

    I can't wait to see your results! Is it going to be a folding camera?
